T20 World Cup in Cricket
Who was the most talented? The T20 World Cup in cricket has been analyzed numerically. A breakdown of who scored the most runs, took the most wickets, and won the most games. The Twenty20 World Cup concluded on Sunday, with England defeating Pakistan by five wickets to capture the title for the second time.
When England won the 50-over World Cup in 2019, they became the first team to hold two ICC World Cup titles at the same time. What was billed as a match between the tournament’s finest bowling attack (Pakistan) and the best batting team (England) came up to its promise, as the latter were forced to battle by the Pakistani bowlers in pursuit of a small score.
Ben Stokes, England’s T20 World Cup hero in 2019, eventually got them home with six balls to spare.
